Cool Idea: Modern Doilies

Kristan Cunningham, interior designer and Design on a Dime host, recently remodeled her rental apartment on a tiny budget. One of the ideas she shared with the LA Times was using her grandmother's antique doilies as decoration in her bedroom. This is yet another example of the growing modern doily motif trend I wrote about back in November. I love the way the simple, black backgrounds showcase the doilies and add a bit of feminine flair to the otherwise masculine, black-and-white bedroom.
Check out all of Kristan's smart reno tips in the LA Times article. Have you framed any doilies in your home?

This is beautiful! I don't have any doilies framed but I do have a French linen that my husbands Grandmother brought back from France for us framed.

No I don't have any framed but I have a doily rug from Urban Outfitters and a matching potholder hanging in the kitchen. I love the look of it, it's sweet but modern and a bit edgy with the black and white.
